Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats, and it makes additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
Although Jamba Juice is serious about using wholesome ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate. Whole fruits and veggies can be blended into an extensive menu of great-tasting smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. But Jamba Juice’s commitment to keeping healthy eating simple informs its solid-food options, too. Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soy milk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.
In addition to nourishing and energizing the human body, Jamba Juice fights childhood obesity by sponsoring Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative encourages fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active—which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
That woman playing the acoustic guitar onstage at Java Joe's just might be the next big thing. As the San Diego Troubadour noted, owner "Java Joe [Flammini] loves music and he loves people and he has an enviable track record of successfully, memorably bringing the two together." It's hard to argue with that: the shop has helped artists such as Jewel and Jason Mraz develop their careers, prompting U-T San Diego to ask, "Has any other San Diego music venue nurtured as many gifted young troubadours . . . as Java Joe’s?" The coffee shop has had many iterations since it opened in 1991, yet this dedication to the local music scene has remained constant.
Still, the coffee should get some of the credit for the shop's success. The staff sources it from Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, a "farm-to-cup" local enterprise that produces its beans sustainably. Patrons can also get a bite to eat or a smoothie to wash it down; either way, there's a good chance their order will be made with local and organic ingredients.
At Mission Restaurant The-East Village, the beans are fresh and the roasts are bold.
